You should try a repair to your operating system.
The easies way to do this is to insert the XP disk into the cd/dvd
turn the computer on and select to boot from the cd/dvd player.
when you are asked if you want to run recovery console say no, and at the screen where it ask if you want to install windows tell it yes. at the next screen it will say that if you want to do a repair press r.
Follow the on screen instructions and hopefully it will find you earlier installation of xp.

You can download step by step guides on how to do this from the internet.

Check your BIOS, by pressing F2 and see if the hard drive is recognized. It should indicate the MFR next to the hard drive listing. If it's not there, then you might have a bad hard drive. If it is there, try re-installing the operating system with the set-up disk. You can also go to the Dell website, enter you service tag number, and get technical support for your particular laptop. It might have a recovery partition in the hard drive to recover to factory settings.

No boot device available- strike F1 to retry boot F2 for setup utility


you can try this steps to resolve your issue:
1. clean your disc drive with white cloth and alcohol
2. try to re-install the OS
3. if this won't work try to download another boot disk like EBCD
or ask a friend to create you a boot disc and try to boot your computer with it.

- This can rule out or confirm a Bad Windows OS disc, thus let's you install you Windows OS in the process.

4. try to re-install again the OS

Primary disk drive not found


Check the connection of your hard drive and make sure it's plugged properly On The Motherboard.

Is this a SATA drive? Has it ever operated properly? If worse comes to worse, you'll have to reload windows from scratch.
